‘While I was able to buy the meat…the problem is, how do I send it?’
‘Give me some too!’
While I had secured some food, I hadn’t solved the problem of transportation yet.
As the slimes took shifts, I would have to have them carry the food when they traded places.
However, if I sent the Proud Wolf, I wouldn’t be able to use him in an emergency.
In that case…
‘I suppose I’ll have to tame a monster for a transporter.’
Currently, I was completely reliant on the Proud Wolf for transportation.
If only I had another Proud Wolf…but they seemed to be quite rare.
On the other hand, there were plenty of monsters with four legs that were quick on their feet. But it was surprisingly difficult to catch them so you can tame them.
Being a Tamer didn’t mean you could just go around taming everything in sight.
First, you had to be able to communicate with them.
If it weren’t for that, I would have caught and tamed a dragon by now.
‘A transporter… Do-do you mean I’m fired!?’
Upon hearing that I was hiring again, the Proud Wolf let out a pained cry.
…But I had no intention of firing him.
‘No. I’m just thinking about bringing another one in. …I think you’ll have to carry the food this time, but if I want to keep the surveillance network up, you’ll want some help. Won’t you?”
‘No-now that you mention it. That’s true…!’
‘And so it would be nice to have another Proud Wolf with us… Uh, do you have any friends?’
‘I don’t have any. We’re all lone wolves. I don’t even know where any of them are.’
So he was a lone wolf…
He didn’t really seem like that kind of wolf.
At his worst, he would hide behind the slimes when strong monsters appeared.
‘Well, I guess it’ll have to be a different monster then. …And if I’m going to catch something new, I think it might as well be a flying monster.’
A flying monster would likely be faster and more suited to reconnaissance work.
Yes, if I was going to go through the trouble of taming a new monster, it would be best to get a flying one.
‘I agree! If we have someone scouting from above, we won’t get attacked by any strong monsters!’
‘…Uh, yeah. Now, let’s go and look for one.’
And with that, I headed for the guild.
There might be quests for hunting a flying monster. Then I could just go to the location to find one.
…As for whether or not I could really tame it, I wouldn’t know until I tried.
Jawbrie: Things are really bad this month(to the point where I’m going to have to reconsider the future of this site). Maybe things will get better, I don’t know.
But there will likely be fewer releases for a while. Sorry in advance.
